Vilanculos Beach Lodge is a small, exclusive and private lodge situated on mainland Mozambique, 5km from Vilanculos Village. It lies ?780 km north of Maputo, directly opposite the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago in the tropical Inhambane province. The chalets are en-suite with either one or two bedrooms. There are 10 chalets in total, 5 for 2 persons with bedroom, en-suite bathroom and veranda and 5 family chalets with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, small lounge and veranda (capacity 5 persons). The maximum capacity of the lodge is 35 persons. Each chalet is built on ironwood stilts with raised mahogany decks and a tasteful combination of mahogany and reed walls. The chalets have total privacy and most have magnificent sea view. We are starting with an upgrade on some of the rooms, as well as adding on one more two bed-roomed suite. The beautifully constructed restaurant and bar offer traditional Mozambican and standard Western cuisine. From the comfort of the lodge you will be able to explore the exotic surroundings as well as have a perfect base to explore any of the archipelago islands. A new addition is the rustic Sem Sapatos (Without Shoes) Beach Bar, right on the fringe of the white sands. A wonderful spot to enjoy a sundowner after a relaxing day.
